    I keep a big squeeze bottle of a mixture of sauces in the fridge: jar of blues hog, half bottle of gates, half bottle of either sweet baby rays or if masterpiece. I use Tennessee red on salads as a dressing (and on my pulled pork).

    For a little extra kick in my BBQ sauce, I stumbled upon Fighting **** that is awesome...very good when combining with a sweeter sauce like Bone Sucking.

  • We like Bone Sucking Sauce and Sweet Baby Rays too.  Since we're on Atkins, we found a recipe from bowulf on YouTube that ain't too bad.  It's tangy and not spicy which appeals to Wilma who is a spice wimp.

    1C Tomato Sauce (no sugar added)

    1C Low Sugar Ketchup

    1/2 C White Distilled Vinegar

    1/4 tsp Garlic Powder

    1/4 tsp Onion Powder

    1/8 tsp Chili Powder

    home made....always tweaking it, never the same twice.... Have a sweet for pork/chicken and a tomato based spicier one for beef....

    I'm not a big sauce guy (like dry rubs without saucing) but "Head Country - Spicy" is damn good. I make my own Carolina Gold for Pulled Pork.

    I like a local company where I live.

    Its called Bon Vivant!

    They stepped away from the "traditional" BBQ flavors. They have Citrus. Caribbean ( like a mild Jerk Sauce), Rootbeer (super on ribs), Chocolate Chili, Fire Roasted Jalapeno and Chive ( doubles up well as a pizza sauce), and a Korean BBQ glaze ( I use it for stirfry as well). They sell it at stores and also at the local Farmers Market in the summertime. They came out with 2 new flavors last summer, a Sweet Sticky Garlic, and a Smokehouse BBQ.

    These guys are different. Yeah its not for everyone, but the differnt flavors they make puts a twist on whats already out there. They are even lower in calories, carbs, sugar and sodium than the 4 leading BBQ sauce producers in Canada. Thats what thye tell me anyway. I think they post that on their site as well. They know their stuff for sure.

    Try some Salt Lick bbq sauce if you can find it.

    I don't get the Sweet Baby Ray thing. I thinks its way too sweet. I rank SBR one step up from Kraft BBQ sauce.

    I only use it on BBQ'd chicken. It is very sweet so I thin it with some vinegar and usually use a spicy rub to counteract the sweetness.

    Usually it is used as my "everyone else" sauce. I have mine out, and I put that out for guests since that is the type of sauce people are used to. I wouldn't be surprised if many that don't grill much have a Kraft/KC Masterpiece-type bottle in their fridge at home. 
  • I was a Sweet Baby Rays fan...until I tried Head Country BBQ sauce out of Texas. I cannot find it in Indiana but I order it by the case in Hot and Regular. It is wonderful.

    Tony Stewart's BBQ sauce is a good one with some tang.


    Also Everglades for a sweet onion taste.

    I tried the John Boy and Billy's Grilling Sauce and was surprised at how much I liked it. They claim that they win a lot of barbecue contests with it, and I can see why.

    Sweet Baby Rays 
    I cut Bone Sucking with vinegar and some black pepper.
    I just bought a Blues Hog Package .. I haven't cooked yet, but i'm impressed w the sauce and the rub.  I haven't opened the red yet.

    Yabbadabbadoo! Where is the caveman cop? :D

    SBR and BSS are our favs. Stubs is good too. A lot of times we just do not sauce at all, as the rub and carmelization is so good, we are happy.

  • I've been using Stubbs for a long time and was wondering if any of y'all could tell me a different BBQ sauce that I should try.Thanks for the help!
    I think Mike Elliott's BBQ & Grilling Sauce is the best on the market. 
  • Rock N Roll Ribs BBQ Sauce. In Boca Raton, Florida there is a BBQ joint owned by the drummer for Iron Maiden. There is just something about that sauce that makes it good. Its almost like a jelly based BBQ sauce.
  • Mickey said:
    @rbaldwin83 I am guessing you are inTexas.
    He can only hope but Stubbs is everywhere. We had it in WI years ago.

  • all the above mentioned are great but give this a try:

    get the white sauce for chicken and the red sauce for ribs. I may be partial because this is a local place for us.

    mccormicks pork rub on some ribs finished off with the bb red sauce is freakin awesome and I haven't found a better combination
